Following his now practically legendary sets at

It's 1995 in Düsseldorf - Jan's hometown - and he's consumed by the Music of Labels like M-Plant, Relief, Sound Signature, Planet E and Phono. Jan owes his first steps to present his record selection (to those other than his lovely dog and cat) to a very good friend who holds a residency at one of the best underground clubs for electronic music, an old wine cellar located in Wuppertal, near Düsseldorf. Here he had the pleasure to play alongside artists who had inspired him since the early nineties. In short - this is the precise starting point of a never ending story fuelled by love for the music.

In 1996, Jan started to work for a record store and focused on hosting his own parties starring international guests like Daniel Bell, Matthew Herbert, Ata and Steve Bug. Around the same time, he met the young and promising producer Daze Maxim. Both clicked right away and found out that they have a quite similar interest in electronic music. Both decided to start some excursions in Maxim's backroom studio to produce deep and minimal house tracks, which were finally released on Matthias Tanzmann's Moon Harbour Recordings in 2001.

Three years later, Jan determined after sleepless nights to move away from Düsseldorf and all his friends in order to start a new chapter in Hamburg. Because of his long friendship to the staff of Germany's leading distribution company Word and Sound, it was a logical step to take on a position as sales manager there. As a consequence of all this, it wasn't long before he proposed to Daze that they set up a platform for him and friends to release music. Hello?Repeat was born.

As a DJ, Jan is adept in the late night hours, playing his highly individual and addictive mixture of deep house, minimal, and techno with rough edges, always focused on the dance floor. Today Jan lives in Berlin and holds a residency at Panoramabar and Watergate and plays ocnsiderably abroad to represent the high quality sound of Hello?Repeat.

San Francisco native Dave Aju has been producing and performing his unique brand of electronic dance music for nearly a decade. He seasons traditional elements of house and techno with a blend of outside musical influences, notably free jazz and p-funk, a low-slung aesthetic clearly rooted in hip-hop, and an organic sonic approach akin to Musique Concréte. The result is a consistently fresh and expressive sound, varying from raw and percussive to deep and melodic, that is favored by an ever-increasing number of listeners, dancers, DJs, and producers around the world. His in demand status has taken him from Moscow to Mexico City, the highly-respected MUTEK Festival, and has garnered support from a who's-who of forward-thinking peers, from hometown heroes Sutekh and Kit Clayton to the illustrious Matthew Herbert, who has recently commissioned Aju to release material on his Accidental label. His recent debut full-length, Open Wide, is currently causing a stir in the electronic music community with it's bold diversity of musical styles and the strict but effective use of only his mouth to construct it.
